 Parks April 2009

I started really getting into photography after my son was born. It’s become a fun hobby and I would like to improve and learn some new skills over the summer. I’m always on the lookout for seminars or workshops for amateur photographers, so let me know if you ever hear of one!  Right now, I just enjoy getting out and shooting and seeing what I come up with. My best buddy Leigh Ann turned me on to a really cool website full of giveaways and photo tips: http://thepioneerwoman.com/photography/ She has some other categories as well, like cooking and homeschooling, but since I do neither of those I just focus on her photo stuff. Ree’s funny and laid back and non-intimidating-my fav things in a woman!  I’m very lucky that my dude Parks loves getting his picture taken, so he’s a very willing subject. Here are some photos of my little wildflower being silly in the wild bluebonnets.

By the way Happy Mother’s Day to you mom’s out there! I count everyone who’s ever held something under their wing, even you doggie moms!

Here are some  blogs I try to keep up with of other moms I truly love! (I’m sure I’m forgetting some, please forgive me!)

I’m trying to catch up with some happenings from April- maybe I’ll be done by July! Parks got a really cool bubble blower from the Easter Bunny, so we had some bubble fun that afternoon. It must have been a really humid day(imagine that) because the bubbles just kept hanging out in the air. It gave me time to take some photos of them floating around doing their bubble thing. The sunlight or the bubble mix was just right because they were crazy iridescent, no Photoshop edits I promise! Aside from the fact I don’t have PSE on my computer at this very moment, I’m not skilled enough to do anything cool without hours of staring at the computer clicking around wondering what might happen.  Just plane jane nature at it’s best.  Anyway, Parks was more interested in making the bubbles and then whacking at them with the blower, some form of bubble fighting I guess. Such a boy! You can check out the pics from that day on flickr here.
